The Behavioral and Human Services Division of Jacksonville runs the Emergency Assistance Program, serving households facing financial difficulty due to an unexpected emergency. The program provides temporary assistance to prevent eviction for non-payment of rent or mortgages. About 4,000 households each year receive assistance. A household may receive up to $750 for rent, and is eligible for this assistance only once every two years.
The program is city-funded, and the budget is approximately $1.3 million annually
